We're having an anniversary party! And you, our wonderful and loyal customers, are all invited.

Join us:
Saturday, August 31, 2013
4:00 to 8:00 pm
at the Bookery, Main Street, Placerville

Can you believe that it has been 30 years since Celia and Nancy bought the Bookery and began its journey toward what it has become today? A bustling venture in buying, cleaning, pricing, shelving, and selling used books....and so much more than that. We see it as a symbol of community, hard work, and dedication. A place where people can relax, where the pressures of our ever changing world can be put on hold, and you can enjoy the presence of good people and the good old-fashioned joy of a book in your hands. 

Here are a few pictures and articles from over the years taken from our scrapbook to commemorate the occasion:

And speaking of new beginnings, as of September 1, Darin will begin working full-time at the Bookery! This is the first step toward Darin and Heather eventually helping run the Bookery to keep its legacy alive and well in Placerville as we grow and expand into the 21st century. You'll be seeing more and more of them around here so be sure to say hello :)

And we hope to see you all at the celebration!
